I am asking that there is a single safe place for a subversion checkout and
the other "you must be warned" places.

Generally distributed version control systems are even more complicated
than centralized control systems such as Subversion.
They have very cool features for *developers*. The ones that are not
afraid of using Subversion in the first place. But as for easy of use
for the simple "grab the latest copy" usage pattern - they only make
life more complicated, in the worse case. For instance, there is no
simple and short revision number (because there's no One Repository tht
sets revision numbers at commit time for everybody).
